If you stayed here and have some insider info for us, let us know!
The host was very understanding and helpful. We enjoyed our stay because we were able to escape the noise of the city, but be aware, you are staying on a farm with goats, sheep and a variety of birds that you'll be able to hear, which we thought was cool but might not be for everyone. The land/pond was beautiful and the bugs didn't bother us (in May) which was a nice bonus. Perfect way for us to get away and be in nature.
Family fun on a farm.
Our family had a wonderful evening on this beautiful farm. The hosts were friendly and gave the kids a tour of the farm and talked with them about the animals. The site was perfect for us.
Bring your bug spray!!
Primitive camping at a working farm
We only gave our host an hour notice... we will take the blame for that... it did need to be mowed but the fire ring was cleared right before we arrived. The slope of the camping area was at a rather steep angle but real campers can adjust for those conditions. I would say level the area off.. a small retaining wall by the pond would give the campers a more comfy feel. Maybe take the dirt from leveling and make a berm around the pond where the campers stay. Even though though there are many animals making noise, a real camper can handle anything. I wish we could have had more time to spend with the animals.
A hidden oasis
Wow. We are lucky Rosalie and family open their farm to us city dwellers. Truly a unique and peaceful experience. The farm is beautiful. We booked last minute to watch a meteor shower, and Rosalie followed up right away. You really feel like you have the place to yourself, and walking around to see the animals is an added bonus. I’ll certainly be supporting this farm at markets and by online order going forward. Thank you Grand Army farms! We’ll be back.
As long as you adore barnyard animals (as I do) you'll be in total heaven. A beautiful view across that wee lake, calm abounds and nature to explore...the hosts are magnificent human beings. Turn off your phone, turn off your mind relax and float....
Great spot, close to city!
Rosalie was great, and communicated well. Very friendly farm with lots of animals. Stayed in spot #2 on the far side of the pond. The fire ring was great, and we had plenty of room for our two tents.
We had a great stay. Owner was nice. It was very peaceful and a nice camping area but not as private, as you can see right across the lake to the house and barn. It was a very beautiful place.
A great escape!
We had the best time on Rosalie’s farm. Thank you to Rosalie and Frank for the lovely stay.
We had many laughs from the ducks!
We also enjoyed the friendly cats and goats. The lake is gorgeous. I’ve never camped 3 feet from the water. We are coming back.
